Marketers have two advantages

information

Internal Records & Marketing
Intelligence
• Marketing Managers rely on internal reports
of orders ,sales ,prices,cost etc

• Customers favor firm that can promise timely
delivery.
• Order-Pay can also be done online.This
process is called as EDI-Electronic Data
Interface.

Database
• A database is a collection of information that is
organized so that it can easily be accessed,
managed, and updated.

• In one view, databases can be classified according


to types of content: bibliographic, full-text,
numeric, and images.
Types Of Databases
1.Relational Database:Basically a tabular database in which
data is defined so that it can be reorganized and accessed
in a number of different ways.
2.Distributed Database:A distributed database is one that can
be dispersed or replicated among different points in a
network.
3.Object Oriented Programming(OOP):This database is one
that is congruent with the data defined in object classes
and subclasses.

Working
Format of Data Storage
Data transmission

• Data Transfer is the amount of


data that can be transferred
over the network in a fixed
amount of time.

• A procedure whereby data is


moved from one type of
processing environment to
another.
How Data is Transferred
• Whenever we send the data the data is cut
into small pieces and then transformed in
form of packets.

• These packets travel and reach to the exact


destination .
Open System Interconnection
Model
This layer interacts with software applications that
implement a communicating component.

establishes a context between Application Layer


entities
controls the dialogues/connections (sessions) between
computers
It provides transparent transfer of data between end users

It provides the functional and procedural means of


transferring variable length data sequences from a source
to a destination via one or more networks

It provides the functional and procedural means to transfer


data between network entities
It defines the electrical and physical specifications for
devices
Two types of Data Transmission
1.Serial Transmission:
It is the sequential transmission of signal elements
of a group representing a character or other entity
of data.
Characters are transmitted in a sequence over a
single line, rather than simultaneously over two or
more lines
2.Parallel Transmission:

• It is the transmission of several bits at the same time,


with each bit transmitted over a
separate wire.

• Characters are transmitted simultaneously over two or more


lines.
Data Warehousing

• A warehouse is a subject-oriented,
integrated, time-variant and non-
volatile collection of data in support of
management's decision making process.
Reason we need Data
Warehousing
Subject Oriented:
Data that gives information about a particular subject instead of about a company's
ongoing operations.

Integrated:
Data that is gathered into the data warehouse from a variety of sources and merged
into a coherent whole.

Time-variant:
All data in the data warehouse is identified with a particular time period.

Non-volatile
Data is stable in a data warehouse. More data is added but data is never removed. This
enables management to gain a consistent picture of the business.
Data Mining
• It is the process of analyzing data from different
perspectives and summarizing it into useful information -
information that can be used to increase revenue, cuts
costs, or both.
• It allows users to analyze data from many different
dimensions or angles, categorize it, and summarize the
relationships identified.
• Technically, data mining is the process of finding
correlations or patterns among dozens of fields in large
relational databases.
Example of Data Mining
Example 1:
One Midwest grocery chain used the data mining capacity of Oracle software to analyze local
buying patterns.
They discovered that when men bought diapers on Thursdays and Saturdays, they also tended to
buy beer.
Further analysis showed that these shoppers typically did their weekly grocery shopping on
Saturdays.
On Thursdays, however, they only bought a few items. The retailer concluded that they
purchased the beer to have it available for the upcoming weekend.
The grocery chain could use this newly discovered information in various ways to increase
revenue. For example, they could move the beer display closer to the diaper display. And, they
could make sure beer and diapers were sold at full price on Thursdays
Example 2:

The National Basketball Association (NBA) is exploring a


data mining application that can be used in conjunction
with image recordings of basketball games. The Advanced
Scout software analyzes the movements of players to help
coaches orchestrate plays and strategies.
Data mining consists of five major elements:
•Extract, transform, and load transaction data onto the data
warehouse system.
•Store and manage the data in a multidimensional database system.
•Provide data access to business analysts and information technology
professionals.
•Analyze the data by application software.
•Present the data in a useful format, such as a graph or table.
